BIOS Writer allows you to copy the settings of your PC's BIOS to a small image file. You can then mess with the BIOS and later restore the previous working settings. One use would be to pull two settings files from a remote machine's BIOS -- one with network booting enabled, and one with hard disk booting enabled. You can then use BIOS Writer to tell the machine to boot off the network or its hard drive by restoring the appropriate settings file.
openadaptor is a Java/XML-based software platform which allows for rapid business system integration with little or no custom programming. openadaptor can be loosely classified as EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) software. It is highly extensible and provides many ready-built interface components for JMS, Oracle, Sybase, and TIBCO, as well as data exchange formats such as XML.
Enhanced Linux Loopback Driver is a version of the Linux loop driver that provides partition table support, and allows you to loopback mount individual partitions contained within a single hard drive image file (i.e. dd if=/dev/hda of=hd.img, losetup /dev/loopa hd.img, mount /dev/loopa1 /mnt/stuff).
s3d is an XML schema for 3d scenes, objects, and so forth (intended primarily but not exclusively for computer games). The problem is that often as a games developer you need to work with many 3d editing tools and rendering engines, and there should be an easy and portable way to move objects, levels, etc. around. By having a common intermediate file format, you only need to write one exporter per tool and one importer per graphics engine. Also, you can develop generic tools which are not tied to any particular engine.
ascii lists ASCII idiomatic names and octal/decimal code-point forms. It provides easy conversion between various byte representations and the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) character table. It knows about a wide variety of hex, binary, octal, Teletype mnemonic, ISO/ECMA code point, slang names, XML entity names, and other representations. Given any one on the command line, it will try to display all others. Called with no arguments, it displays a small, handy ASCII chart.
